A Solid Filming of the First Half of the Story
This is a solid filming of the first half of the story of "Enoch Arden", based on Tennyson's poem. It's really incomplete in itself, since it leaves off right in the middle of the story, but even at that it's probably not a lot different from the way that a mini-series or other present-day broadcast might require viewers to come back later to see how things turn out.

The sea-side settings create a good atmosphere that help the story considerably, in that they add to its believability. Linda Arvidson was well-cast as Annie, since her natural expression conveys a rather somber look at life, and a healthy respect for how vulnerable human beings are to fate and to the elements.

Since this first part does not complete the story, you really have to watch the next part as well in order to evaluate the picture as a whole. But it can definitely be said that this first part gives a solid telling of the story that would certainly make most viewers want to see the rest of it.
